Chocolate Mugcake : Fit Edition + Square Bar Surprise (Vegan)
I be muggin'...I be muggin'...(excuse the grammar). Bey(once) has been on my mind because VMAs just ended and I thought it was perfect for this post! *ok Krystle focus*
This mugcake is spongy, so if you are looking for a healthy, non-spongy mugcake, I have not found a recipe yet. I am sorry. I'm relatively new to mugcakes, this being my third mugcake ever made throughout my whole 20 something years of life. It was especially delicious to me because it is under the healthy category! And i'm really the most non pickiest (is it a word?) person on the planet, so let me know your thoughts on 'em.
And here I have Square Bars taking the spot light for a little bit. I was sent some samples from Sarah, who launched Squarebar in 2012, and she gave me three flavors and oh my golly, I tried the Cocoa Coconut flavor and before I knew it, it was all gone! So I couldn't even showcase that flavor in my desserts. The flavor I used here was Cocoa Crunch, my favorite! The last flavor was Cocoa Almond, my boyfriend's favorite since he ate most of it. I have a little left that I'll be able to show with my foodies so no worries on that one! Anyway, go check out these bars! They are organic, vegan, healthy, gluten free...Anyone can pretty much eat these!
Back to this mountain of goodness...
Check out the recipe below!
NOTE: When making these, I didn't pay attention to the amount of non dairy milk I put into the batter. Having said that, the consistency of the batter should look like cake batter and if you feel any friction stirring it, its too thick and you should add liquid little by little until you get the consistency. I also used oatmeal that I simply grinded with a blender. You can also any protein powder, I used Orgain from Costco. You can substitute the replacement egg with applesauce or flax egg. I didn't have any so I used the vinegar technique: 1 tablespoon vinegar + 1 teaspoon baking soda. This dessert is healthy, protein filled, and vegan! Perfect for breakfast, post workout, or late night snackin'.
